Having a nightmare installing a tyre
Trying to install Racing Ralph I bought from On One. Didn’t realise it was a UST version until it arrived. Putting it onto Stans rim [Run Ringle Black Flag Pro’s] and I’m having a nightmare. They were super tight to get over the rim for starters and now I can not get them to seat. They are so tight against the inside of the rim that they just won’t ‘ping’. Are they just not going to fit? Should have just got tubeless ready ones I suppose. These are just a nightmarePosted 5 years agorickonSubscriber
Sounds like a classic post-2010 Schwalbe tyre on a Stans rim. Not recommended for use together as generally they’re the wrong size for each. I.e. schwalbe is smaller inner diameter, and stans rim is bigger. Both are trying to solve the same problem. Trouble is, that only works when they’re still compatible.
At some point it’ll probably blow off, wreck the bead, and you’ll have a broken tyre. Probably.

I was told it was post 2012 or Tubeless ready schwalbe, though post 2010 might fit my own problem
slight thread hijack:
I’ve got 2011 Schwable Alberts to fit tubed on Stans Arch EX with relative ease (no fairy etc), just they won’t seat at 20psi with pulling nor 40psi, even after ridingglobaltiMember
DON’T USE DISHWASH LIQUID! It contains salt as a thickener, which will rust the spoke nipple threads and leave a sticky mess all over the wheel.
Talc is the best clean, dry lubricant for sticky new tyres. Every bike mechanic needs a small pack of baby talc in their workshop.Posted 5 years agojohnnystormSubscriber
I got a pot of that rim lube (Fnarr Fnarr) from OnOne. Didn’t realise it was a kilo pot until it arrived! Brilliant stuff. I had the same problems with RaRaRoRo on my Crests. Solved it by buying Maxxis tyres. 😉
Using the rim lube I fitted a pair of Nobby Nics to the same crests which went straight up. Genius stuff.Posted 5 years ago
